That means you can give Alexa multiple commands at once!
Here are a few examples of how I use this handy feature…
- “Alexa, set a timer for 20 minutes and play my cooking playlist”
- “Alexa, turn off the living room lights and turn on the Fire TV”
- “Alexa, turn on the Christmas tree and turn on the twinkly lights”
Once in a while, she does need you to repeat one of the commands, but I generally find she’s able to complete both commands 9 times out of 10.
Thank you to the VoiceBrewer who gave us this tip—this is a real game changer!
You can also enable Follow Up mode, which prompts Alexa to listen after your requests to see if you have a follow-up request. But we prefer just putting our Alexa requests in the same Alexa command.
